New York State Capitol skyline, Albany, NYThe Student Academic Conference (StAC) planning committee is happy to announce that registration for the 2015 Student Academic Conference is now open. StAC is a two day conference taking place Oct. 23 and 24 at the Holiday Inn on Wolf Road in Albany, New York. The conference aims to bring together students from all geographic and academic areas of the college to share and learn from each other in a variety of ways.

Students who have conducted research, presented at a national conference or are passionate about a particular subject are encouraged to submit a presentation proposal. Presenting at the conference allows students to educate their peers on a particular area of expertise and build a network with others interested in the same topic. There are a variety of formats in which a presentation can be conducted from individual, to group, to poster, to artistic performances. Please visit our Call for Proposals page for more information and to submit a proposal.

If you’re looking to participate in more of a social way consider attending the President’s Town Hall Saturday morning, mingling with Student Clubs at the information tables or attending the Art Show and Alumni reception Friday evening. We also encourage students who are passionate about art to consider submitting their own work to be displayed at the Art Show. For more information on submitting art work please visit our Call for Art Submissions page.

Conference registration is free for students. In addition, limited travel grants are available to help students cover the cost of their hotel room and/or travel to and from the conference. Students also can bring up to two guests for a minimal fee.

For more information and to register or sign up for any of the amazing opportunities mentioned above please visit the conference’s Web page at For any questions you may have please feel free to email the planning committee at
